Grandma bought the shiny thread she liked and had her oldest granddaughter crochet the skirt in the early 1970's, for her to wear to lodge meetings. The skirt is about a size 12 in Ladies sizes, 3' long, with mixed colors in the granny squares and an olive green outer border to the squares. Elastic has been worked into the top openwork row. The bottom rows are a multi-colored border. Please email me with any questions you may have, and thank-you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
